    Chummy sure does seem to fall into motherhood so naturally. With her first child and she seemed to have so much time and energy left over. My goodness. Who was washing her baby's nappies? lol

    While she loves little Freddy, she wants to also keep doing something else she loves- how shocking

    I didn't guess, but it made sense. I think its just the time period and discovering the real causes of sickness more and more. Kudos to Sister Monica Joan! I just knew she would help. Great episode. Loved Chummy!

    When I saw those dirty diapers in the sink I just cringed. What in the world did they disinfect the sink with, before placing food or dishes in it? They also bathed from it right? Did they have access to bleach? So disturbing.

    Such were the times for some people. CTM hasn't shied away from the squalor people lived in or the habits they had. It was disturbing.

    We're going to see the Downton Abbey costume exhibition at Winterthur (Delaware) in September!!!! Very excited about that. :-)

    I, of course, will dress tastefully and will wear my Downton Abbey necklace and matching earrings.

    OK. So, I finally got around to watching the new episode of Mr. Selfridge and I'm not so sure how I feel about it. It's either been too long since I saw the finale of Season One, and I've forgotten a thing or two, or they've advanced the timeframe further than I expected so I'm surprised by what's going on with the characters. It took me a bit of time to figure things out.

    That said, I'll continue to watch the show but, as of now, I do like Call the Midwife, The Paradise, and Downton Abbey a lot more than Selfridge.

    It took me a while to recall a lot of what came before in Mr. Selfridge, but by the end of the episode, most of it had come back to me. I still like it and will continue to watch though some of the new stories aren't my favorite. I don't really care for Rose being so easily manipulated by her new friend; nor do I care for Lady Mae being so dominated by her despicable husband. She clearly married him for money and position, but it seems to out of character for her to crumble. I suspect she'll manage to destroy him sometime during the season.

    Still, this is all based on the reality of their lives, so I guess much of what we're seeing really did happen.

    I'm really eager for the new season of The Paradise. Do we have an air date yet on PBS?
